Yet mailing-list archives may be a solution in this kind of case.  Though not 
everybody might be willing to go dig up there.  Would be better if, like other 
mailing-list softwares I saw, we could be resent back the previous mail by 
asking the mailing-list software (and that could allow to answer these 
messages, without making a new thread)… maybe even by querying subjects 
matching a certain regexp…

I think it was about *personal* repetition.  Because for instance Jean Louis 
posted a lot (like more than a half-dozen) several-pages-long messages stating 
the same thing at short intervals. So it likely applies to a single individual 
repeating oneself, not to several individual saying the same (thus likely 
expressing it differently, and certainly adding the information that they too 
support that view).

However like you said before, repetition may be useful for newcomers and 
different thread (when no-newcomers will ignore what have been said).  But for 
these case I think private sending of such repeated information could do, 
without bloating the list with redundant information, and that wouldn’t be 
enforceable or impedable by any moderation.

Then, adressed individuals could, privately, without bloating, answer that 
they learnt something, or that they already new and that message was useless, 
for good sender acknowledgment to progressively learn to become more effective.
